New office helps child abuse victims

January 21, 2005

Valdosta - Victims of child abuse and trauma now have a new place to get help.

The Children's Advocacy Center opened a new and improved office this week. The facility, located on West Moore Street, is about 4,000 square feet and double the size of their old office.

There's a large intake area, therapy clinic, board room, and private interview rooms. "We have several entrances and exits, so if you're coming for a board meeting you can come in one way and leave that same saw and never go to the lobby and if you're coming for therapy you can come in a separate door, go to the therapist office and never see the other people," said Laura Bajalia, Director.

The building is being paid for with donations and money raised during the center's capital campaign.
